Presently when we setup a new user on an iPhone or Android device, we are telling them to email a blank message to themself, so they have an email with their signature on the phone.  Then they are told to copy their signature and paste it into the signature settings on the device.
 
I know each vendor (iOS/Android) allows limited functionality and access to certain settings, but I was wondering if there was an automated way to allow Traveler to use the Signature field in the Mail database, or populate the Signature settings on the device with those from the mail database.

This is much easier with iNotes. I understand the frustration. For Traveler, this would be easier with the Android client as IBM built that application. On the iOS devices, it is owned and controlled by Apple. The bigger issue is that IBM does not want to appear to favor one platform over the other---in my opinion---so when a feature is available on the Apple side, they tend to make it available on the Android side--thus ensuring balance, which I understand.

To that point, if Apple doesn't allow an API hook into their client, I feel there is little that IBM can do, as they are limited by Apple's code.

Though possibly one can generate a special 'Traveler signature' message from Notes that auto-fills the signature file on the mobile device, for a small set of smart phone operating systems. Outside of that, even passing down the field in a profile document would only work on Android.
